DIY Christmas Ornaments (great for the kids)

Clay Ornaments:
1 cup regular table salt
2 cups white flour
1 cup luke warm water

Mix all together in a bowl and they lay out with a rolling pin in sections. 
We used Christmas cookie cutters. 

We set the ornaments inside the stove at 200 degrees for about an hour, half hour on each side. After cooling we painted them with acrylic paint. We formed the hanging holes while still warm from the oven with the point of a pen and once finished strung with thin yarn :)

Enjoy! The kids loved this so much they keep asking to do it again!

Snowflake Ornaments:
Popsicle sticks

These were so easy for the girls and could do it all on their own! Even my three year old was capable to doing it!

Then once dried, paint and be-dazzle with sparkles! 

This is the first year we will have a (real) tree with the kids. So because this is a big deal for us (after 5 years of no tree), we decided to make it memorable - in hope to make the tree a complete expression of the children. Here's to great traditional memories!
